 Stayed here for many years. Immaculate site in every way for 12.50 per night' it is a working farm but very little noise. Beautiful countryside all around and lots of places to visit especially the mere at nearby Ellesmere town.

 I stayed here for just 2 nights 9/10 June. I was met on arriving, shown to my space, told me where things were. Adult only site. A few min walk from the Shropshire union canal. About 4 miles to Ellesmere, quite hard riding on bike. Very pleasant to walk but only a few mins in to town.

The site is very nice with views over the fields. Well worth a stay and quite cheep at 12.50 a night. I will go again

 Lovely site. Very well maintained with spotless toilets and shower. Very helpful, friendly owner. The site is a minutes walk to the Shropshire Union Canal, we enjoyed walking jogging on the towpath. Ellesmere is a nice town and we also walked around Colemere and Whixhalll Moss. Had a good meal at the Sun Inn nearby. There are lots of walks and cycling we want to do in the area so we expect to make a return visit.

 My Partner and I, plus friends in their van have just spent the bank holiday weekend here. The site is quite lovely and in a quiet spot near to some lovely walks along the Shropshire Union canal and neighbouring countryside, plus the lovely town of Ellesmere. When we arrived the owner was there to meet us and direct us to our pitches and was very friendly offering lots of advice re: pubs an walks. The pitches are hard standing but only small and awnings aren't allowed. The field is very well kept and the hedges are all trimmed, the toilets and shower are immaculate, overall a very well maintained and spotlessly clean and quiet site. We'll definitely visit again.

 If you want peace and quiet, this is the site for you. Only small, 20 units, and there's plenty of room for your unit. No children and no awnings allowed. Only downside is there are no washing up facilities for either crockery or clothes, and you are charged 30p for a shower. The toilet blocks are very clean. Could also do with a quick note of places of interest, eg, local pubs, restaurants, shops, etc. The area is great to visit. If you walk out the site and turn left, you will see a bridge, that is the canal that takes you either way, and gives pleasant walk/ cycle rides. If you travel by car and want something to eat, there is a pub in the nearby village, although we didn't actually visit the pub, it seemed to be well patronised. Visited Ellesmere, lovely little place and great place for picnic at The Mere, a very large lake. Will visit this site again

 This site is a gem, I doubt if you will find many reviews because, like myself I want to keep it hidden.

There is only one shower per sex. A very well kept site where Mr Adams the owner makes you very welcome, ' just find you own pitch'. Most of the campers were long standing clients having been going for years.

The canal is just down the road, easy to bike into Ellesmere albeit a little rough in parts and a long tunnel where a light is useful.

We have marked this site as a favourite, although it was perfect weather which makes a difference.

What a difference from the regimented C & CC sites.

 Had a great stay for one night at this campsite. The owner is very friendly and obviously takes great pride in his campsite as it is immaculate. The toilets are pristine and the camping field is very well mown. The hard standings are great for a motorhome with plenty of room. The location is superb for walking being a few hundred yards from the canal. I turned left and walked to Colemere which you can walk around and is great for the dog to have a good swim. All this for 11. 50 per night, brilliant.

 Just spent 5 nights at Hampton Bank Farm and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The pitches are quite generous once you have manoeuvred your caravan onto the level hardstanding strip the rest of your pitch being grass.

Nice welcome from the owners and shown where all the facilities were.

The views from our pitch were excellent.

The toilet/shower facilities were spotless and the whole site was in excellent condition. Recycling is encouraged.

Visited nearby Ellesmere also Oswestry and Shrewsbury are fairly close by.

Walks are close by the easiest being along the canal which is only a few hundred metres

From the site. The area also seems very popular with cyclists as well as walkers.

There are no shops as such in the village but Ellesmere has a Tesco supermarket as well as local stores.

The only slight downside to the site in our opinion is that there is some road noise from the B5603 but we didn't find it too intrusive, especially at night which was good ensuring a good nights sleep. Would we visit again the answer is a definite yes.

Reviewer: Lillie73 19 reviews from this member

 Have just returned from a long weekend at this site, what can I say excellent, the site is immaculate and so quiet.

The toilets are kept clean but the only criticism is the note regarding not to use the toilet paper to wipe your hands but no towels or drier supplied.

The canal is about 3 mins away and is great to be able to walk the dog.

Most people we talked to were regulars who kept coming back, would recommend this site and would certainly go back
